The standard inverter for the next generation, the FRENIC-Ace, can be used in most types of application - from fans and pumps to specialized machinery.

Customizable Logic

Customizable logic function is available as a standard feature. FRENIC-Ace has built-in customizable logic functions with a maximum of 200 steps including both digital and analog operation functions, giving customers the ability to customize their inverters—from simple logic functions to full-scale programming. Fuji Electric also has plans to offer programming templates for wire drawing machines, hoists, spinning machines, and other applications so that the FRENIC-Ace can be used as a dedicated purpose inverter.

Superior Flexibility

FRENIC-Ace has readily available interface cards and various types of fieldbus / network to maximize its flexibility.

Wide Variety Of Functions As A Standard Feature

  • Sensorless dynamic torque vector control
  • Motor vector control with PG (with optional card)
  • Synchronous motor with sensorless vector control
  • 2-channel on-board RS485 communications port
  • Standard CANopen compatibility
  • Removable keypad device
  • Removable control terminal block board

Multi-Function Keypad (option)

FRENIC-Ace has two different multi-function keypads available

  • Multi-function keypad with LCD display: Enhanced HMI functionality
  • USB keypad: Connect to a computer for more efficient operation (set-up, troubleshooting, maintenance, etc)

Functional Safety

FRENIC-Ace is equipped with STO functional safety function as a standard. Therefore output circuit magnetic contactors are not required for safe stop implementation. Enhanced standard features position FRENIC-Ace ahead of its class (Safety input: 2CH, output: 1CH).

■Complies with (coming soon)
EN ISO 13849-1: 2008, Cat.3 / PL=e
IEC/EN 60204-1: 2005/2006 Stop category 0
